not of the world

in the world not of the world 15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is …

Here We Go!

Photos taken by Brantford Road Rebels. I enjoyed my two down weeks, which included 140 km and 120 km of running (and swimming and biking) and … lots of ice cream. Yep, that’s right. I splurged. I ate anything I wanted. The funny thing is that there are many things I could have eaten but had absolutely no desire to …

Plan B

Plan B. Let me take you back two months. Shortly after returning from Rotterdam where I ran a PR and breakthrough of 2:32:06, I started to re-think my next plan. Coach Rick was recovering from surgery so I wanted to give him some time. Meanwhile I asked a few people for their thoughts about the best route for my running …

Canadian Running Magazine is publishing  an article on me that will be in the Sept/Oct issue, which hits newsstands the last week of August. They needed some pictures so we did a little photo shoot at the North Park Highschool track (where Kevin Sullivan attended) next to the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre where I train (and the kids are cared …

Not this time …

As much as I would have been thrilled to have my name on this list with the other athletes representing Canada at the 2012 Olympic Games, it’s going to have to wait until 2016. Lanni and I had our appeal denied by the SDRCC arbitrator this morning. Am I disappointed, yes. Am I devastated, definitely not. You just don’t know …

Vancouver Victory

Another great weekend. Yes, indeed. So, I flew to Vancouver for the weekend, to run the Scotiabank Vancouver Half Marathon. For some reason, flying to Vancouver seems like a long flight, much longer than to Europe. Strange. Anyway, Steve picked Eric, Reid and I up at the airport and drove us to the hotel (thanks again, Steve). As soon as …

Karen and Kevin – Brantford and Area Sports Hall of Recognition

Last night I had the privilege of attending the Brantford and Area Sports Hall of Recognition Induction ceremony where Kevin Sullivan and Karen Harvey were inducted. Let me tell you…these people are highly respected, not only for their amazing athletic accomplishments but also their incredible, positive influence on those around them. Their acceptance speeches were so heart-felt and meaningful to …

Feeling Fit and Fine.

Training is going quite well. Very well, actually. Again, I completed another “highest yet” mileage week of 164 km. It was also fairly intense with a 10 km hilly race, a decent 6 x 1.2 km speed session on the track, and a 44 km long run (with my buddy, Clayton). I’ve been taking one day off every two weeks …

Hilly Speed Workout Race … New 10 km PB!

Coach Rick and I thought a 10 km race would be a great way to do a speed workout. Turns out the Ancaster Old Mill course is VERY hilly. BUT but I earned myself a new 10 km PB of 34:59! Not too shabby! Again, we enjoyed ourselves as a family and the boys loved the 1 km fun run. …
